    not having luck on win10 forum so thought I'd try here.
    I got a new computer with win10-64b networked to old computer with winxp-32b, win7-64b,win10-32b on it.
    the two computers see each other in all os's.
    Problem is printer that is conn to old computer.
    newpute-win10-64b can print with networked printer when oldpute is booted to either win7-64b or win10-32b but when its booted to winxp-32b it looks & sez it can't find drivers. As far as win10 goes the drivers are supposed to be builtin so not sure why it can't find them when oldpute booted to xp.
    any ideas?

    thank you so much.
    the 2nd link had the answer, basically create a new, separate port for it.
